We Will Never Forget: the Boston Bomb Scare

I am sure we all remember the tragic day when the LED effigy of Ignignokt magically didn’t explode, but was still thought to be a bomb. Who would have ever thought that people in the US would be so dumb and ignorant to think that an LED lit up sign is a bomb.

But they did, in the end; I believe two men were charged with some dumbass charges because they somehow managed to declare the LED signs “hoax devices”. So, next time you have a company and you hire some people to do some advertising for you, might want to be careful, they might be considered terrorists.

I am not going to bag on Alienware too much, but I have seen some of their desktop computers, and they aren’t too terribly attractive, in fact, the only desktop I’ve ever seen in person that looked good was the Blackbird 02, but much like both of those computers, this desktop from China has the performance, and the style. Sure it costs nearly 50 grand, but it has a side door that opens more eloquently than a Lamborghini.

Hey, now you can mess up your next trade show too. This trick isn’t quite as bad as it doesn’t turn the TV’s off, it just makes the remote controls useless, which could also be considered worse.
